    I have not played the full release of this game. I have only played the demo. But I actually took the initiative to sign up on Metacritic and post this review based on the demo. I was completely turned of by the text box dialog, with having to press X to continue. What makes it even worse is it is interlaced in typical cut scenes that have Japanese dialog and English subtitles. Then itI have not played the full release of this game.

Then it changes to a box, with no audio cept that of a typing out as it prints out the text. Then it migrates back to cut scenes. Was completely turned off by that. The fighting felt natural and solid. Collapse

    This game is the defination of **** gameplay sucks. Seriously a total waste of time and money.
    The only thing a bit good about this game is the combat but only a bit. I even found the story lame.

    C'est l'histoire de programmeurs japonais qui veulent faire un jeu à la GTA et dans un sens, c'est très réussi : je n'ai jamais autant ri.

    Ri devant ces graphismes de Playstation 2, ri aux voix japonaises (les seules disponibles) ri durant les nombreuses cinématiques ridicules (mais pas trop longtemps quand même, on finit par rire jaune). Ri devant ces boîtes de dialogues en anglais

    Ri devant ces graphismes de Playstation 2, ri aux voix japonaises (les seules disponibles) ri durant les nombreuses cinématiques ridicules (mais pas trop longtemps quand même, on finit par rire jaune). Ri devant ces boîtes de dialogues en anglais (appuie sur X pour lire la phrase suivante...?)

    J'ai ri aussi devant cette ville que l'on ne peut pas explorer, où l'on ne peut strictement rien faire à dire vrai, sauf suivre le chemin imposé : une ville-couloir, il fallait le faire... ils l'ont fait (Sega c'est plus fort que toi !).

    J'ai ri également devant cette pauvre histoire de yakuzas plus niaise qu'un épisode de Candy, ces combats de rue indignes du plus mauvais jeu de baston, ces boss débiles. L'ambiance sonore est pauvre voire inexistante, la musique... n'en parlons pas. Oh bien sûr j'oubliais, on peut utiliser des objets du décor pour tabasser les tatoués. Tout cela est désopilant et consternant. L'humour japonais sans doute !

    Don't get me wrong; Yakuza 3 is still a good game that offers a uniquely Japanese experience and dramatic content an order of magnitude more mature than most of what's coming down the pike, but it just doesn't match up to the first two entries. I hate to say it, but the Dragon of Dojima's gotten soft in the middle-it's time for Kazuma to cut back on the yakiniku and get his ass back to the gym.
  2. No other Japanese PS3 game to date provides quite such a vivid game-world in which to play. [JPN Import]

    Tells a good story and is a fun game. [Issue#191, p.74]
